Grand Canyon – Cape Royal – As we walked along the path between Angel’s Window and Cape Royal overlooks, we could finally see that the sun was burning off much of the haze that had persisted all morning. I was finally able to make some photographs with the shadows highlighting the ruggedness of the canyon walls.
Our trips from Yellowstone National Park back to our home in Central Texas usually include stops at places we had never been or places we wanted to return to. In the fall of 2016, we decided to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. In late October, the downside of visiting this area is that nearly every concession operation in the park had already closed, or operations were significantly reduced. However, this same fact meant there were not a lot of other people making our visit more relaxing.
